Operations in Response to COVID-19

Due to the effects of Covid-19, these are unprecedented times for all of society, including water science and outreach at Wisconsin Sea GrantWhile our staff continues to adapt to this changing situation, we remain committed to the mission of promoting the sustainable use of Great Lakes resources through research, education and outreach. We are returning to our offices on the campuses of the University of Wisconsin System in Green Bay, Madison, Manitowoc, Milwaukee and Superior while continuing to practice safe methods to stay healthy and prevent further spread of the virus.

Our social media accounts, Facebook and Twitter, remain a good means to stay current with our activities, particularly outreach events which, due to the spread of the Delta variant, may remain in virtual formats.

The Wisconsin Water Library is open. And please continue to reach out for assistance with reference questions or resource discovery. The senior special librarian, Anne Moser, is available. She has also assembled some useful STEM resources for distance learning. 

We have a robust website offering publications on the Great Lakes and other water topics. Many resources are downloadable. As we begin our office reopening, hard-copy items can once again be mailed upon request. We have also renewed printing and distributing the Aquatic Sciences Chronicle. You can review current and past issues. Some of the past issues were electronic-only during earlier points in the pandemic.

Our YouTube channel has many informative and engaging videos. Plus, we have been adding archived and captioned webinars of virtual public meetings and presentations on coastal topics hosted by our extension staff.

Please contact us if you have questions or concerns, and please stay healthy. Here is a reminder of the reliable sources for Covid-19 information and guidance:
